Termination of Accreditation

TERMINATION OF ACCREDITATION

DROPPING ACCREDITATION

An accredited conformity assessment body may drop the accreditation that was granted for any reason and make a written request to ATS to withdraw accreditation at any time.

 ACCREDITATION WITHDRAWAL

ATS can withdraw accreditation that was granted on the basis of surveillance activities, nonobservance of contractual obligations, assessment results or from the proposal of the Accreditation Committee. In particular, ATS will initiate the process of withdrawing accreditation if during surveillance activities it becomes known that the conformity assessment body intentionally provides false information about its accreditation, or misuses accreditation or arbitrary violates accreditation rules. A conformity assessment body the accreditation of which was withdrawn shall, immediately after the accreditation withdrawal, send back to ATS the Accreditation certificate and Scope of accreditation that ATS issued thereto, and undertake, by means of a written declaration, to carry out all actions preventing the use of the accreditation symbol or combined marks or making text reference to accreditation or ATS status as a signatory to the ЕА MLA, ILAC MRA and/or IAF MLA after accreditation withdrawal.

The conformity assessment body has the right to appeal if it is not pleased with the ATS decision on accreditation withdrawal.

The conformity assessment body the accreditation of which was withdrawn can submit a new application for accreditation thereafter.
